DrnkMcDermott (3058) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2010
22 oz. bottle, $4.20 at Sam’s in Oct. Wow! First thing when I opened it, I got the unmistakable smell of a pineapple upside-down cake! Hazy gold to brown body, and a big spongy head. More citrus hop smell from the poured glass, but pineapple still dominates. Taste is full of, well, Sumpin’ Extra, that’s for sure. Big American citrus hops, and malt sweetness. Not from the usual pale ale malts, but between that and pilsener (I see that the Sumpin’ Sumpin’ has some wheat in it, that must be here, too). Plenty of fresh hop taste, but then the bottle is just a few months old. My IPA tulip glass just concentrates more of that lovely smell whenever I poke my beak into it. A wonderful Impy IPA, and at those great Lagunitas prices!

I’m not sure whats happened but I used to love this beer and it hasn’t seemed the same the last few times I’ve had it, maybe they’ve changed it. It’s still ok but not great.

Great IPA. Fairly widely available. Good color and great balance. Not too fruity, bitter, or sweet. Another winner from Lagunitas

RNDave (20) - Fillmore, California, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Decent American ale. Not too fruity. Hoppy yet smooth and robust. Color is very golden and clear. Taste isn’t remarkable or bland. Doesn’t linger on the palate. Overall quality ale.

Amber color. Citrus aromas, wheat and bread. Taste is also heavy citrus, oranges and grapefruit, sweet malt base and hoppy finish. Pretty good!

Looks nice golden, clear and decent foam - leaving beautiful lacings. Aroma is mainly dominated with hops, there is fresh cut grass and also some pine character - that is balanced with bread biscuit grain dust. Taste has its fair share of sweetness but hops are strong as well and are balancing this quite nicely. It has some unusual feel to the body, somewhat fuller and grainier than all-malt beer, wheat is making wonders and contributing to the uniqueness here. Goes down probably faster than it should.

mjs (7046) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2016
(Keg at Hilpeä Hauki, 20160610) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and sweetness. Palate was rather full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, pine, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. More like a barley wine than a double IPA. Nice.
